Are we really getting another Freddy's game? I guess we are despite developer Scott Cawthon's previous announcement that the series would be wrapped up after the release of Five Nights at Freddy's World.
Scott Cawthon's official website is showing off a new teaser image hinting the game will take place in a Fazbear's sister location, stating "There was never just one."
The teaser image itself is more clown-like than most of the puppets and animatronics seen in previous Five Nights at Freddy's games. The large, round cheeks and nose, long eyelashes, and overall look definitely have a "clown" vibe and don't look much like the horrors we've seen in previous games.
In case you think this teaser image isn't hinting at a new game, Cawthon himself has taken to the Five Nights at Freddy's 4 Steam Discussions forum to calm some of the confusion surrounding the image. One post specifically states:
"Hey guys, relax. It's just a game series. If you're done with it, then you don't have to stick around. Five Nights at Freddy's isn't going anywhere though, so either move on or buckle up. ;)"
In another post Cawthon claims this time around it will "definitely be different" and have "a lot of surprises" in store for fans.
Perhaps we were too trusting in thinking the series would end. It just wouldn't make sense for the movie to still be in the works with the series dead, does it?
For better or worse Freddy's doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Hopefully this next game finally wraps up the lore and tries something new and brings back the sheer terror the series was once known for.
